Changing the Game

Drake, a popular rapper is working towards making a change on the way rappers are supposed to be viewed. He is known for his emotional music, and has been labeled "soft" or has been criticized for not being a good rapper because he puts himself out there emotionally, and sings about things like heartbreak. He puts women on a pedestal and sings about them in a positive light. Rappers are known for their music to have explicit content regarding women, treating them like objects, and speaking about them in an aggressive or abusive way. This is the socially excepted norm for the industry. Drake, who has a large fan base, is changing the game, shaping the youth of today to view masculinity in a new light.
